Depending on the complexity and weight of the component, we use one of our three machines that have capacities of 600, 1,000, 1,600 or 2,500 tons for the forging process. Each machine is a standard hydraulic press, but tooling changes based on the temperature of the material and shape of the component.
Components that are going to be exposed to high loads or forces, such as suspension components, are produced with a high-tonnage machine. For some components that have a more complex shape, all three machines are used.
The ingot made from steel or aluminum is formed in a hydraulic press at a temperature of around 400-500°C that allows the metal to be manipulated into the die shape.
For die forging, the heated metal is then forced into a die impression to create the complex shape of the component.
After the component cools, we perform safety tests based on dimensional analysis to test for tolerances, environmental standards and general testing to ensure the component exceeds expectations.
This is our entire line of forging machines. Each is used to perform different actions based on the raw materials and components that require different forces. On the right side of the photo, an operator transfers a component from the 1,600-ton machine to a second press. For some components, all three presses are used to complete the shape of the component.
An operator transfers a wheel hub, which requires stamps from all three machines, from one machine to another.
An operator oversees a press performing a stamp that requires extreme pressure to form the component. For each component, the tooling is adjusted for the structural dimensions of the die.
To cool the component prior to testing or secondary processes, the components go through the conveyor belt to cool. This is the final step of the production line.
This is another angle of the conveyor belt that is used to cool down the machine. In the center of the photo, the operator transfers the component from the 600-ton machine to the conveyor belt.
Here, the flame keeps the tooling to a certain temperature so that the tooling can work with the raw materials. If the temperatures of the component and the tooling are too dissimilar, the tooling can break.
